Shintaion Resistance (re)

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Pirogeth, Jul 6, 2010.

  1. [align=center]Shintaion: Resistance[/align]

    Today we mark one of possibly the last history lessons in our world today. Our world use to be controlled in unison by Humans, Demons, Elves, and Forbidden Beasts. That control was disrupted as the humans took an evil nature with the revelation of their own technology. Forbidden Beasts found a peaceful accord amidst the chaos but the Demons and Elves were not so lucky. There was also one more creature that was not talked about, the dark beast.

    [align=center] [​IMG][/align]

    These creatures were ruthless and not kept well on a leash. To fight not only these powerful creatures but the demons and elves as well, humans had to develop a new weaponry. The two major advances were the plasma weaponry made as well as the Armours. Armours, are mechanical suits designed to be highly mobile and capable of firing heavy automatic weaponry. Once these armours became main stream they got their own specialized equipment with five centimeter rounds. At full height they stand at about twelve feet.

    [align=center][​IMG][/align]

    With power came chaos and that chaos turned Lavion and Teros against each other. Shintaion also had its own share of civil disputes making Abscus and Shrivisk the only countries not at war. Thankfully most of that came to an end quickly due to the efforts of a small group of people. These people are rumored to have high positions of power now a days. Along their journey they found demons and elves that had been in hiding since the war. Although their feelings towards humans were dark they decided to aid in the fight against the corrupt government. Once that came to an end the woman named Heather Halberd rose quickly in political rank and was promoted to president of Shintaion.

    Again it was not long to last as revenge had snuck up on Shintaion. It was a brief battle and one that did not have a happy ending. The president was ushered away to Abscus as well as what survivors could find a boat or airship. The dark beasts had successfully broke the chains of their own bondage and ravaged the Shintaion landscape. Once that continent was taken they turned their attention to the already weakened Lavion. Finding that easy enough to take they focused on their neighbors next, Teros. However, they found that harder to take as they were primarily a military nation. The fight destroyed a good portion of the dark beasts but Teros was eventually claimed.

    [align=center] [​IMG][/align]

    Now Abscus and Shrivisk are the only ones to take on the remaining threat and resist complete annihilation.

    Alright history lesson is over everyone, now to tell you about the different kinds of people you can sign up as.

    Humans

    Primarily a technologically savvy race who specializes in guns and armours. The guns are plasma weapons able to deal moderate damage to dark beasts and the armours, as said before, are mobile suits with a max height of 12’ and average round size of 5 cm.

    Along with those technologically advanced features, there are also much smaller advances that we know as nanites. These nanites are programmed to give telekinetic control over certain elements. These nanites reproduce inside the blood stream so once they are in they are permanent. People with these nanites are called Technomancers. The only difference between them and a normal magician is they cannot make a fireball out of midair or things like that. They must have their element present.

    Demons

    Demons are capable of channeling their inner energy into their weapons and attacks. This allows for a high amount of endurance as well as high attack power. They know their way around martial arts rather well and some are quick to temper. Nearly all don’t know how to use guns or armours.

    Elves

    The more stealthy and agile of the species, the elves use their unique tracking and speed advantage to be hired assassins or special operatives. They do not carry heavy weapons but they make due with smaller items. Again like the demons they do not know how to use guns or armours.

    Forbidden Beasts

    Now I know there are questions going to be asked about these creatures but I asked the creator to make you a guide. Here is the basic description of what these creatures are.

    Basically Forbidden Beasts can use regular weapons from sword to gun but also have the ability to turn them into pure energy. From this they can use this as a conduit to control their element.

    There you have it, we will all be starting in Abscus and I’d like to keep characters pure so no mixing. PM me any questions you have. Now onto the character sheets.

    Name:

    Age:

    Specie:

    Element/Specialty:

    Appearance:

    Equipment: (If necessary)

    Personality:

    History:

    EDITORIAL NOTES: Seeing as the RP is the same basis just restructured the OOC will be re-implemented. I would like to let everyone know they will be playing on the side of the "goodies" or heroes if you want to call them that. There is a vast array of villains already and we got plenty of chances for fights.

    In additon a new rule will be instated upon this as well. Everyone will have ONE primary character and everyone else past that is subject to NPC control so we aren't waiting on everyone all the time. The only characters that bypass this rule, obviously, is the villains but even they are subject to this rule when in a fight with the heroes.

    Now we are starting this fresh so everyone is welcome to join.
     
  2. Allright then, here we go again. Yeah, I know Ramia isn't a primary character but since I already had her bio done, I best include it.

    These are very similar to the first ones with some minor changes.

    Primary character

    Name: Monsoon "Sky Knight" Griffith

    Age: 21

    Specie: Wind Beast.

    Element/Specialty: Specializes in wind energy. Due to the nature of it however, he prefers to use for long range combat rather than close range. He primarily creates throwing weapons and some wind based techniques. He also makes use of his fast speed and flight capabilities while fighting.

    Appearance: Rather average for a wind beast, meaning he's somewhat thin weight wise so he can fly with his wings easily and he's about 8 feet tall. His wings are white and bird like. His skin is green for the most part, with some black stripes. His tail is smaller compared to that of other beasts so as to aide flight. Wears a standard light-weight flight uniform that has holes for his wings to poke through. It has a logo of a flaming wing on it.

    Equipment: None.

    Personality: Monsoon is rather selfish and materialistic but a generally a good person at heart. He has a bit of a drinking problem, flirts with women a bit too often and is a rather perverted. But he will obey orders, as long as he trusts the one giving orders and doesn't believe he'll get killed. Rumor has it, he is smitten with Ramia and all signs seem to confirm that.

    History: He lived in a rather run down Shintaion city long before the war with the dark beasts began. His father, Gale Griffith was considered a hero who fought in several Shintaion based conflicts and survived. He earned the title of "The Sky Knight" for his mastery of aerial combat. Monsoon's mother Makani Griffith died of an unusual sickness while his father was out fighting, leaving Monsoon with no one to raise him but family friends as his father was usually on duty.

    Monsoon's father promised he'd return after one final battle and resign, but he never came back...This left Monsoon with a deep resentment for him, feeling his father cared more about heroics and fame than his own flesh and blood!

    He did grow attached to his new family but when he grew of age, he decided he had to repay them for taking him in. They were rather poor and struggled to feed him for all those years so Monsoon vowed to repay them. He became a mercenary around the age of sixteen, hoping to strike it rich. He left Shintaion that day and began to travel the world.

    He eventually befriended a Fire Beast woman by the name of Ramia during his travels and joined with her to form a small mercenary group known as "Flint Griffith Hunters". They became rather famous after capturing several of the most wanted criminals around the world. Monsoon's name was recognized by the media and they dubbed him the Sky Knight, much to his dismay.

    When war broke out in Shintaion with the dark beasts ravaging it, Monsoon was horrified. His foster family had survived and made it out but the city of course, was leveled to the ground. He and Ramia immediately decided to join with the Abscus and Shrivisk forces, realizing they could no the dark beasts were the greatest threat and thus, the best pay off. Revenge being another factor as well...

    NPC Character

    Name: Ramia Flint

    Age: 22

    Specie: Forbidden Beast, Fire Beast

    Element/Specialty: Fire energy is her specialty. She primarily uses it for close up combat, preferring to create fire claws or other close range weapons. She does on occasion use some ranged techniques but they pale in comparison power wise. She also makes use of her speed during combat and is not above using her bare fists to strike as well if she is out of fire energy.

    Appearance: About 7 feet tall. She is not as thin as Monsoon weight wise, but rather slender in general so as to allow for agility. Red skin and she has a claw shaped birthmark on her right shoulder. She wears clothing that resembles a female soldier's outfit, however it is customized and has a logo of a flaming wing on it and the name.

    Equipment: None.

    Personality: She is rather stubborn and tough despite her rather easy life. She does not like to let others make her choices for her and values freedom. She is very brave in general but at times might not know when to surrender. She also is not very fun loving and is rather serious, she does not joke around like Monsoon does. She also tends to question authority far more than Monsoon does. she trusts only herself, Monsoon, her family and a few select others.

    History: She was adopted and raised by the prestigious and wealthy Flint family of Shrivisk at a young age. They were humans but despite this, they raised her well and treated her quite nicely, making sure she received the best education she could get.

    She grew bored however when her family insisted she stayed away from combat related positions and become a business tycoon like her adopted father or to become a scientist like her adopted mother. Ramia is very skilled and enjoyed fighting. She has no interest in the corporate world or in science and technology however, thus she went aganist her parents wishes.

    One day, she also discovered too much about her own heritage when she visited the orphanage she was adopted from. She learned they found her near a "gate". A place said to be an entrance into "the Underworld". From that day forward, she wanted to discover her heritage, who her real parents were and if she truly came from such a place.

    She decided to leave home and try to find out more about the gate. She could not find a way to get it to work however. She was rather upset when she discovered research about the gates could not go forward due to lack of funding. Because of this, she decided to be a vigilante and capture wanted criminals, hoping to earn enough money to fund the research and open the gate. Her family wouldn't help her as they insisted it didn't matter.

    She was met great success but she needed more money. She ran into Monsoon and decided to join forces and work together and start a small mercenary company known as "Flint Griffith Hunters". Despite this idea, the Flint family still speaks with Ramia and still cares for her, although they do not approve of her career choice.

    As soon as Shintaion was attacked however, she had to change her goals. She decided to forget about the gates and focus on the impending war. After all, if the dark beasts had their way, there would be no one left to do any research on the gate.
     
  3. Name: Cyrus "Cumulus" Anti

    Age: 22

    Specie: Human

    Element/Specialty: Excellent marksmanship Cloud .50 caliber

    Appearance:
    First attached image (also note there is extra armor on the right shoulder to compensate for kickback)

    Equipment: Cloud .50 caliber, with a ten round magazine and a semi-automatic pistol. (The name Cloud comes from the fact that the gun has the potential to shoot massive holes through clouds) This is only because if one maxes the amount of power the Cloud can handle it can fire one bullet at an insane power level, but the cool down after wards is 8 minutes so is rarely used, unless there is an absolute shot or multiple targets close to one another.

    Personality:
    Cyrus is generally laid back and likes to have good time, however when duty calls the job or mission comes before play. On occasion he is known to drop the seriousness and let out a joke or two, because it's just to good to pass up. He enjoys the casual chat and makes friends easily. Not to mention he loves getting on Estelle's nerves.

    History:
    Ever since Cyrus first picked up a gun he was a natural crack shot. As soon as he became 18 he joined the military and because of his expert shooting skills became a sniper, slowly after much training he received the fable Cloud .50 Caliber sniper rifle. After he reached Cloud status he was giving a unique nickname Cumulus as do all people who reach the highest level sniper rifle. Once this status is reached all users are assigned to an elite three man team, Cyrus was assigned to team Black Crow which consisted of Armour user Estelle and up close and personal Jericho.

    It was not long after that the dark beasts attacked and took over Shintaion in which their faction became broken as it was the government of Shintaion that Black Crow belonged to. Now the three work as mercenaries only taking jobs that they deem worthy and may help the cause against the dark beats.


    Name: Estelle Fernone

    Age: 20

    Specie: Human

    Element/Specialty: Armour user and adept hacker

    Appearance:
    Second attachment
    Suit and armour fourth attachment

    Equipment: Armour class: Gomorrah, in addition to standardized issue guns a medium sized knife is kept on the right leg, for last resort purposes.
    This armour is built for speed which is why it only has the standard plasma guns and knife. The 6 plasma guns are located in the wrist (3 for each) and ammo is fed through the armours arms the ammo being located in the back of Gomorrah.

    Personality:
    Estelle is just as any girl her age would be engaged in the thought of love and hoping to achieve it one day. She cares for others but mainly small children who were taken away from her parents as she was. She gets offended at any comments from Cyrus that tease her and well anything Cyrus does she thinks is stupid, only because she is secretly in love with Cyrus.

    History:
    When Estelle was 5 she showed great potential in the art of armours, at least according to the scientists who found her. She had a unique brain chemistry that made her a perfect candidate. She was taken away from her parents without their knowing in the middle of the night, and has little recollection of her previous years.
    Since her abduction the military has trained her in the proper use of armour and in her spare time became an adept hacker using her armour to break into government secret files, and when she was 19 discovered the file of Cyrus and instantly fell in love. It was thanks to her (or so she claims) that he wound up on Black Crow so she might have a chance with him.

    Name: Jericho Emanon

    Age: 35

    Specie: Human

    Element/Specialty: Deals not with guns or knives but massive blunt objects, and is extremely strong.

    Appearance:
    Third attached image (minus the cross stuff)

    Equipment: Giant Nail or rather anything one can swing around

    Personality:
    Jericho is the caretaker of the group and treats everyone as a little kid because he is so big and has a hearty laugh, it's just in his nature. He is very compassionate for those around him and in battle while do his best to treat the enemy as humanly as possible, making them immobilized or finished quickly with a skewer.

    History:
    Jericho was a humble military man who after had reached the age of 30 retired fro mthe military swearing to never use a gun again has he considered them vile weapons. It was not long after he had retired that the dark beasts had broken out, and he was called back to active service. However, he hold to his oath and instead took a giant nail from a monument that has been destroyed by the dark beasts and used it as his weapon.
    At the beginning of the battles with the dark beasts Estelle was assigned to skirmishes with Jericho as she needed combat experience and Jericho was more then happy to take her under his wing. Slowly but surely they worked on getting Estelle used to the tragedy of war, practicing when and when not to have emotions.
    Through the battles of Shintaion against the dark beasts he ran across Cyrus and duly noted his skill and recommending him to join Black Crow to the government, in which they accepted Jericho's request.
     
  4. Name: Shi

    Age: 20

    Specie: Demon

    Element/Specialty: Beginning: Does well with a modified EBR M21 that holds and fires plasma based rounds.

    Later: Orb Based Transformation

    Appearance:
    Show Spoiler
    [align=center] [​IMG][/align]


    Equipment: Modified EBR M21, modified clip size of 20 rounds. Cool down needed after 5 consecutive shots. Cool down takes at least two minutes.

    X38 portable all purpose information storage and retrieval device, X38 for short. The device is fitted to his wrist and used to be connected to the Nostrian main computer in Shintaion.

    Orb…a spherical object that seems to hold more questions than answers. So far Shi knows that this orb is related to him somehow and has the ability to transform him like a normal demon. The voice of the orb has told him he is the last of the noble lineage of the vampires.

    Personality: Shi is a kind hearted man and has a great sense of justice. He believes in his friends and lives to see bright days ahead. With dark clouds looming overhead he will find a way to strive for the light just beyond the clouds reach.

    History: Shi was supposedly called an orphan. That all changed when the civil dispute caused a huge disturbance around Shintaion. He quickly found himself wrapped up in a matter that concerned all the gangs and the government of Nostria.

    Over the time he was running from the clutches of the military and public servants he met several individuals who wanted to see the government cleansed of the wicked. One of these people was Edmund, a dark beast who also had an interesting past supposedly with the leaders of the dark beasts.

    The conflict they engaged in was won after a talk with the rogue towns that disguised the gangs located there. The fight was intense with the towers being guarded by sentries and armours. Finally Shi made it to Killard’s quarters and defeated him. The fight caused major disruptions in the temporal dampeners in the towers which in turn caused rips in time and space. The collapsing rifts caused large explosions and it was thought that Shi died in the final one that took out all seven Nostrian towers.

    Instead Shi found himself catapulted through time five years and several hundred miles away from his original destination. He now looks to Abscus to find answers as to what has happened in his absence.
     
  5. Just so everyone knows, you don't have to be a part of any prior story you can still join this. For one it is starting over from the beginning and two although it runs off a few ICSYL things it is pretty fun and should be an intricate character driven story.

    I'll wait probably until Friday next week to start this. It's my one day off and I'll have all day to do what I want to make the IC a bit better.
     
  6. Hmm I personally think we should get some more people first then worry about starting the RP. But then again it would be nice to get this started again soon, I miss RPing. I mean either way, we should still be able to get some more people in. This is an RP we want to see through until it finishes and have some good fun with it too.
     
  7. BLAH~ I can't remember my last character very well, but I did want to change her a little bit, so I sort of redid her, too :D
    EDIT: nevermind xD I found the old thread~ mixed both characters a little :D

    Name: Cecilia Skye

    Age: 17

    Species: Technomancer

    Element/Specialty: Light / Specializes in healing

    Appearance:
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    Equipment:
    -Her sling-across white messenger bag with feathered rainbowhue designs contains::
    A set of accupuncture needles (both sterile&poisoned)
    A small notebook with a sparkled cover & a couple of pens and thin markers tied together with a rubber band.
    Plasma Gun Ammunition
    A dense medical set + first-aid kit materials.
    Crystalline Gun Bullers
    -Her gun holster belt :
    A plasma gun holster on the left side for her plasma gun.
    Three Acupuncture Needles hidden in the bow on the right side.
    -Strapped to her Left Thigh:
    Custom-designed Semi-Automatic Shotgun*
    *Designed by her father :: Crystalline bullets in the shape of crystals for impact. The tips are poisoned for aftereffect.


    Personality: As a child, Cecilia was a precocious, competitive girl. Whether it was studies or gymnastics, she always strove to be on top and make her father proud. Now in her later teens, Cecilia has a more serene personality. She makes friends easily, but does not open up as quickly. Although she can be quiet and observant for long periods of time, Cecilia's true personality consists of her childlike optimism and energetic behavior. She's rather impulsive, but always has the best of others in mind. She could be a great adult, but she'd rather come off as the helpful little sister. It all depends on your perception; Cecilia believes that life is tough, but you've got to keep fighting even if you're at a disadvantage. She's always trying to keep everyone around her in high spirits despite what might be going on in their lives. Sometimes she has a hard time keeping up with her smily routine, but she tries her best. She's intelligent, cunning and a surprisingly quick-thinker, able to make decisions on the spot. If you argue with her, be prepared for a heated debate, you're not going anywhere until you've got a taste of her flaming temper. She doesn't throw a tantrum, but she might if she feels like acting like a child, which she does often. She's the epitome of innocence that everyone left behind in their childhoods. Her wish is to make their dreams come true.


    History: The youngest of three older brothers and an eccentric scientist of a father, Cecilia had anything, but a normal childhood. Mr. Skye was one of the leading scientists in the development of nanites and still participates in the research. Her eldest brother was one of the first to volunteer for the nanites injection in order for their father and his lab to study the breed now known as the technomancers. Mr. Skye's other sons, in the spirit of war, became technomancers as well. When Shintaion fell into disarray, however, Skye and his family relocated to Abscus. It was in this struggle, that Cecilia realized that she, too, like her brothers, wanted to fight for the sake of her people.
     
  8. Alright accepted, we should be able to get this into IC mode soon then.
     
  9. Hmm, that sounds good then. The sooner the better. Although it certainly wouldn't hurt to get some new recruits this time as well.
     
  10. Alright new one is up here and it is looking a bit better this time. If you are wondering where to start try hanging around Abscus's capital. I'd say if you wanted to you could even use Heather in your post as she walks down a public street. She is widely recognized as not only Shintaion's President, but the military coordinator in league with Shrivisk's emperor.
     
  11. Ok, post is up! Yeah.. Honestly it seems like Monsoon will be easier for other player's characters to approach than Ramia, despite the fact he's dealing with a traitor. :P Yeah, not the best first post but..I didn't want to force action since a fight would be outta place right now.

    However, here's another option. You are free to control Alonzo in your posts, perhaps have him try to escape and have your character stop him.
     
  12. Ok.. This isn't the best way to start off pace wise.

    Tux, I think ya can post dude. If ya need help thinking up one or questions we can talk on MSN or something. Sakura is on a trip so I understand her not posting but it's been like 4 days and heard nothing from ya and no posts in the IC.
     
  13. This is a character that might work. Please message me at aragon-draco on skype or msn at aragon-draco@hotmail.com to tell me if it will work.

    Name: Michael "Dragon-Singer" N'Draco

    Age: Looks 29

    Species: Elf

    Element/Specialty: light and fire, energy manipulation, arcana spells

    Appearance: Stands 6' 4" and weighs approximately 160 lbs. Hair: White-Blond, Eyes: Blue with gold flecks, Skin: He has altered his skin with magic to appear as the mythical blue dragon his parents told him about. He is well toned, but is much, much stronger than appearance suggests.

    Equipment: Carries a 7' carved oak staff topped with a blue diamond, through which he can channel the energy for manipulation. He is armed with a black dagger made of a unique metal that makes it impossible to dull, it is housed in a sheath of the same material. Also, a small, six-hole flute.

    Personality: Quiet, and often smiling, Michael is known to be an unassuming individual, but his skin and hair often draw trouble, as does his bisexuality. At heart, he is a pacifist, but he will fight if it becomes necessary.

    History: Born on a date far into the past, he does not know his age. He was raised in a forested place in Shintaion. His parents died when he became of age, due to a freak accident. Over the course of his life, he has had many fights, which he did not start or want. He has known that he is destined for many fights and a war that will decide the fates of many. His Spells have granted him that much prescience.
     
  14. Hi Aragon, added you to MSN as I am the living MSNbook of Iwaku names.

    I appreciate you taking interest in the RP however I do have slight issues that I can smooth out with your profile. I'd also like to take a chance to note that OOC character sheets need to be approved by the GM before posting in the IC. Kinda like applications at work...sort of ^^;;.

    Anywho about the profile, Shintaion Resistance expands off of a previous universe created by Shintaion Rebirth. There is no "real" magic users left in the world besides a very select few who cannot do more than parlor tricks. However, that doesn't mean you can't be a magician. What we have we call Technomancers. These guys use nanites in their blood to control the element around them. They are allowed only one element but can use two if they use "Temp Tech." This is a pill that can be digested for 30 minute nanites of any element. However, research on these were abruptly ended in Rebirth so these pills are rare.

    The only rule on these nanites is that the element needs to be present to use it. There is no "out of thin air" things. (That's mostly for the Dark Beasts who haven't discarded their need for magic enhanced abilities which is why they are such a threat.) So long as we get your magic using to be Technomancing we'll be a-ok.
     
  15. Ah, sorry I haven't posted yet. I'll add this to my list as soon as I have more time on a computer xD
    (In Canada, currently)
     
  16. Well, drama in real life folks. No idea if I'm going to have internet or not for the next few days.. I may even have to move somewhere new sooner than expected.. <_<

    If all goes well, then maybe I won't disappear but I'm betting I will. It's a sucky situation.

    Well, feel free to hijack my character, Piro. Ramia is an NPC anyhow so using her to interact with one of your characters should be fine and easy.
     
  17. Haha Piro may be jacking everyone as I'll be gone till August 7th on a cruise, hence my lack of activity getting ready for it.
     
  18. Damn. Well I got somewhat good news on my end at least, I may have jumped the gun. I can't leave until my lease is up from the looks of it so I'll have a few days with internet here.. <_< At least until the end of the month of August.
     
  19. Ok...Post is up. Next post or so I can send both of my characters over to deal with what was going on with Tux's characters. I feel they'd be easier to hijack at the moment since Sakura's character hasn't had the chance to enter the RP yet and I don't wanna mess any ideas she has up.
     
  20. Eh, sorry about that. Hard to find a computer here that I can actually use and think at the same time. x3
    I will try to post today or so~ I don't have anything in particular in mind, but let's see what I can come up with ;)
